Amazingly, there isn't more rust for just sitting out there. Nice to see the tan interior...my favorite :wink:

Well, that is an interesting car. At least you know what you're doing, that is gonna be one heck of a project. So, will it be ready for the Nats?? :D

I'd like to think I can get it done before the Nats....but it's a "spare time" deal so I don't know for sure.

I DO know that I have to get my own T/A done soon. I had WAY too much fun running that clunker up and down the road in front of the shop on Sunday.  :lol:

hhahahahaha YES!

I asked the guy about that when I was chaining it down on the trailer.

His response:
"Well I had the gas tank out to fix the hose on it and I figgerd since it was out I might as well paint it to keep it from rustin."

Of course, he didn't bother to remove any of the rust on it BEFORE he painted it bright flourescent green.  I still don't know why he used bright flourescent green.  :lol:

As soon as I got there the first thing I did was get down on the muddy ground and roll around on my back checking out the underneath.  :lol:

The tail panel has some rust, but other than that it's solid as a rock underneath. There are a couple small rust holes in the bottom of the front fenders.....but the car is surprisingly solid. The trunk is pristine.

I have been looking for a 79 Bandit optioned this way for quite awhile.....just to build into a 455-powered beast for myself. I'm really stoked about it.  8)
